The flesh of the olives separates easily from the pit. The oil yield is average.
The tree can pollinate itself sometimes, but not always reliably. It flowers early, and the olives ripen late. The tree is cold tolerant.
Salonenque trees are grown in Provence, specifically in the area of the mouth of the Rhone river, particularly in the Vallée des Baux, where the tree accounts for over 60% of the trees planted there (as of 2004.)
Salonenque is the variety name: you never buy them under this name.
